After Thanksgiving I thought this painting might be appropriate.

Vanitas is a well known theme in art, especially in Dutch art from the 16th and 17th centuries. The word means emptiness and refers to the traditional Christian view of earthly life and the worthless nature of all earthly goods and pursuits. I wanted to paint a modern version of a vanitas and thought the leftovers of a McDonald's meal were just perfect.

kind regards, Gerard
